At Least 49 Dead, 48 Injured in New Zealand Mosque Shootings

On Friday morning, terrorists attacked two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and killed 49 people.

Anyone over 16 can apply for a New Zealand firearms licence, valid for 10 years after completing a safety course and a police background check.

The government advised people not to go to mosques until further notice.

He is "sickened" that the shooter said to "subscribe to PewDiePie" in a video before the shooting. Health officials said 48 other people were being treated at Christchurch Hospital for gunshot wounds.

New Zealand police said three men and one woman were taken into custody. "So we must face that hate and terror with love and compassion and not only should Muslims be going to jumah today, everyone should join them in solidarity". "The horrific active shooter scenario at a mosque is something we all pray never happens (but) there is no active intelligence that there is any immediate threat in the U.S. But we can not be complacent".

A few minutes later, broadcasting his journey on a live Facebook stream and listening to the British Grenadiers marching song, he walked casually into a mosque and raised his rifle to the first person he saw.

TRT World's Jacob Brown explains.

New Zealand's gun laws have remained largely unchanged since 1992, when the 1983 law was toughened in response to another massacre in which 13 people died.

He visited Bulgaria from November 9-15 previous year claiming he wanted "to visit historical sites and study the history of the Balkan country", Bulgaria's public prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov said, adding that the inquiry would establish if this was "correct or if he had other objectives".

New Zealand's Police Commissioner Mike Bush said a number of IEDs that were attached to vehicles were found and made safe by their defence force.

Separate "endorsements" are required to own semi-automatic weapons like those used in Friday's attack, as well as pistols and other restricted weapons.

He portrayed himself as a racist and a fascist and raged against non-Westerners, but said China is the nation that most aligns with his political and social values.

"This individual has travelled around the world with sporadic periods of time spent in New Zealand", Ms Ardern said on Saturday.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who condemned the attack as a "horrible massacre", was praised by the accused gunman in a manifesto posted online as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose".

Last year, New Zealand's prime minister announced that the country would boost its annual refugee quota from 1,000 to 1,500 in 2020.

The New Zealand attack was unleashed at lunchtime local time on Friday, when mosques were full of worshippers.

Christchurch was the home of these victims.
